Ty Pennington      

Television Personality, Home Makeover Guru & Author

Ty Pennington first won national attention as the quirky and creative carpenter on the groundbreaking home improvement series Trading Spaces. Later as host of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Pennington helped transform the lives of hundreds, while inspiring millions more around the world to volunteer their time to help others. The show was consistently rated among television's Top 20 programs and won two Emmys for Outstanding Reality Program.

He also hosted Food Network’s series American Diner Revival, a hit show that showcased both design and food in an emotionally charged format. Ty traveled the country breathing new life into the heart and soul of many communities, the local diner.

Ty was also seen alongside legendary Chef Emeril Lagasse in the TBS show On The Menu. The Mark Burnett-produced series was "the first cooking competition show to give viewers at home the chance to taste the dishes they see on screen." Amateur cooks create "signature items" for restaurants. The winner's dish — decided on by a panel of judges —goes on a real restaurant's menu the next day.

Pennington has been recognized as a leader in the field of volunteerism for his work on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition and his role with Abode Shelters, an international charity that provides sustainable, humane housing for homeless and impoverished city dwellers.

In addition to his extensive television work, Ty is recognized for his design expertise and style. He launched the Ty Pennington Impressions fabric line with Westminster Fabrics. A flooring line, The Ty Pennington Collection, was featured by Lumber Liquidators. Pennington’s outdoor and holiday décor products, Ty Pennington Style, were one of the most popular brands at Sears for 16 consecutive years.

Pennington’s last book, How Good Design Can Change Your Life is an intimate look at Ty’s design inspirations with décor advice and tips. It followed his New York Times bestseller Ty’s Tricks, which is part reference and part behind-the-scenes in Ty’s own home, which he completely remodeled himself.

He currently resides in Florida, New York, and Los Angeles.
